There remains a high threat to British individuals and organisations in the region. Terrorist attacks could involve the use of chemical and biological materials. 

Military action in Iraq continues. Developments in Iraq and on the Middle East Peace Process continue to have an impact on local public opinion in the region and this might be expressed by some people, including through acts of violence against British nationals or organisations. You should follow news reports and be alert to regional developments. 

You should maintain a high level of vigilance, particularly in public places frequented by foreigners such as hotels, restaurants and shopping malls. You should take sensible precautions for your personal and vehicle safety and avoid any political gatherings and demonstrations. 

Our Embassy will shortly be operating a full public service.

A U.S.-led coalition began military action in Iraq on March 19, 2003. Given the heightened tensions as a result of these hostilities, together with increased threats globally from terrorism, Canadians should defer travel to Bahrain. Canadians should evaluate their need to remain in Bahrain, and if their presence is not essential should consider leaving. Information on the crisis in Iraq is available at

Canadians who choose to remain in Bahrain despite this warning should maintain a high level of personal security awareness at all times as the security situation could deteriorate rapidly without notice. Exercise extreme caution, particularly in commercial, public and tourist areas frequented by foreigners. Canadians should monitor local developments, avoid crowds and demonstrations, as well as register and remain in regular contact with the Canadian Embassy in Riyadh (see below) or the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (call collect 613-996-8885).

Avoid leaving vehicles unattended. When doing so, carefully inspect both the exterior and interior upon return to detect any attached devices or suspect packages nearby. Treat mail and packages from unfamiliar sources with suspicion. If you notice anything unusual, contact your sponsor or call the Bahraini police immediately. Suspects as well as witnesses to incidents may be held for lengthy periods without access to legal counsel or consular officials. If access is granted, it may be severely limited by the Bahraini authorities.
